COURT WILL RULE
ON JURY TRIALS
Appeals Tribunal to Decide
Whether Defendant May
Whether jury trials may be demanded
Jn any Police Court cases will be decided
by the Court of Appeals of the District
of Columbia. The higher court yester
day agreed to hear a case Involving this
point when Chief Justice Martin
granted a writ of error in a Police Court
case. The case bringing the point to a
locus is that of William H. Colts vs.
The District of Columbia.
Attorney William B. O’Connell, ap
pearing for Colts in the appelate tri
bunal. advised the court that his client
was accused of reckless driving on July
19 last on O street southeast. An in
formation was tiled against him on the
day following, the court is informed,
and on August 6 the case came up
before Judge McMahon in the District
branch of Police Court.
Says Trial Was Refused.
Counsel recites that his client pleaded
not guilty and requested the court to
grant him a jury trial, which was re
fused. Noting an exception to this rul
ing, Colts was tried before the judge
alone, and upon being found guilty was
sentenced to a 30-day jail term.
In his brief filed in the Court of Ap
peals O'Connell argues that the act of
March 3, 1925, amended July 3. 1926,
provided that trial may be had before a
judge alone, except in cases where the
fine or penalty may be more than S3OO
or imprisonment more than 90 days.
The accused may demand a jury trial,
the court is informed, under Section 2,
Article 3. of the Constitution of the
United States. The right of trial in all
crimes, except cases of imprisonment,
shall be by a jury, and so much of the
act of Congress as attempts to deny to
the defendant this constitutional right
is unconstitutional and void. Counsel
sets out that the defendant did not
waive a jury trial, but, on the other
hand, demanded a jury trial in Police
Asks Conviction Be Set Aside.
Colts asks the court to set his con
viction aside and that he be granted a
trial by jury.
Objections to the arguments of the
appellant were filed by William W.
Bride, corporation counsel for the Dis
trict, and his assistant, Chester Gray.
They contend that Colts is not entitled
to a jury trial under the Constitution
nor under Section 44 of the District of
